Ever-growing Industry

The construction sector is hugely diverse, with plenty of jobs within a wide and varied range of sectors. From quantity surveyors to site managers, there's a niche that’ll suit everyone's interests and skill sets. With Singapore's ambitious target of greening 80% of buildings by 2030, and its current challenge on greening its existing stock of buildings—skilled professionals are extremely valued. Current skill shortages are leading the construction industry towards an increasingly candidate driven job market.

Graduates Equipped With Highly Relevant Skills

To uphold high standards, we make sure every student gets relevant internship working experience in reputable companies. They are also taught using the latest technology such as BIM 3D modelling technology which is now widely used abroad, especially in the United States and Japan. This way, graduates are ready to start work immediately knowing the latest regulations and technologies of the industry.

A Government Institution

We are listed by the Ministry of Education as a Government-affiliated educational institute. Our diploma programmes are comparable to local polytechnics and are widely recognised by many established local and overseas universities. Graduates of our diploma programmes enjoy advanced standing for admission to degree programmes in certain local and overseas universities. What's more, as a government institution, we work closely with industry practitioners by helping the industry to acquire new skills and capabilities.

Our Partners in Further Studies

Here Are Some of Our Success Stories

There is more to construction than physical labour. In fact, our students are trained to be highly skilled white collar professionals in the industry. Designers, Quantity Surveyors, Estimators, Engineers, Project Managers, Account Managers, Planners, Contract Managers—the list goes on. If you have a skill or interest, the odds are good that the construction industry can use it in some way.

Campus Highlights

BCA Skylab: World’s First High-Rise Rotatable Laboratory for the Tropics


The BCA SkyLab was developed by BCA in collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, a world leader in science and engineering and building energy performance research. The facility boasts a 360-degree rotatable capability, full plug-and-play configurability and is fitted with extensive instrumentation and sensor networks scalable in future. These sensors measure performance metrics such as energy performance, indoor environmental quality, outdoor environmental parameters and building automation system indicators.

Zero Energy Building


As BCA's flagship R&D project under its Green Building Masterplan, an existing building at the BCA Academy was retrofitted into a Zero-Energy Building (ZEB). It houses green classrooms and offices, and also functions as a test-bedding centre for Green Building Technologies. This project is partially funded by the MND Research Fund for the Built Environment and EDB Clean Energy Research and Testbedding (Cert) Programme.

Centre for Lean and Virtual Construction


Students can now simulate construction processes and immerse themselves in a 3D walkthrough at Centre for Lean and Virtual Construction—the first-of-its-kind experiential facility located at the BCA Academy. The Centre will equip built environment professionals with process change skills based on Lean Construction and virtual construction concepts. It will also encourage project teams to build digitally before actual construction. Such full-dress rehearsals conducted in a virtual environment can enhance collaboration and integration during the project delivery process, which can improve construction productivity by up to 20%.
